At CEEW, we separate clients from funding institutions. Funders are never given the right to final review of any our publications prior to release. Our monitoring and evaluation systems are designed to prevent any conflicts of interest.

CEEW is committed to being a resource for policymakers, academics, industry stakeholders, journalists, students, and the wider public. It makes all its research and analysis freely available to the public.
